Chapter 2 - My Second Transit to Heaven

Not up to one hour after I revived on earth the two angels came to me again and said, "Brother Michael, the Lord is calling you, come up higher." Then I shouted in excitement, "You have come for me again!" I fell to the ground. I could not tell whatever was the condition of my physical body lying on the floor then. The next thing I saw was that I had put on a body like theirs and we left for heaven. Soon we arrived at the beautiful gate. I met Jesus Christ standing at the gate. When He saw me He smiled at me and held my right hand and said,

"My son, you are welcome. I have not finished showing you what I want to show you."

Then we all went into heaven. We went near a particular mansion. As we stood by the side of the mansion He looked at me and said,

"Men say, the people of the world say, `How can fish swim in the river and not drink water from it?' This is the thought of men, their imagination. My blood can save any one who comes to Me from sin and sustain him in Righteousness and Holiness. My blood can set him free from the power of sin. Go and tell them, My standard has not changed. My standard on Holiness has not changed. I am the Lord, I change not. I remain the same yesterday, today and for ever."
Revelation 1:5
"And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood."

Hebrew 9:14

"How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"

Hebrews 12:14

"Follow peace with all men, and HOLINESS, without which no man shall see the Lord."

The Church Now a Place of Fleshly Pleasure

Jesus continued,

"The church has become a place of pleasure where all sorts of wickedness are being practiced. Ladies seduce men through their immoral dressing. I cannot behold this wickedness going on in the church. Ministers of the gospel are not left out. The church has become a place of seduction. People go from church to hell."

Ezekiel 8:4-18

6 "He said further unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel commiteth here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? But turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.

12 Then said He unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seest us not; the LORD hast forsaken the earth.

18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: Mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in Mine ear with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them."

Jesus continued,

"Many believers live as if they are going to spend the rest of their lives on earth. They are careless about the perishing souls of men. Preaching the word is not only My heart-beat but also My heart-pain. But many things have occupied the mind of the Christian pilgrim. He has forgotten that he is a stranger in this world passing through to another world."

Ezekiel 34:1-6

1 "And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock?

3 Ye eat the fats and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

6 My sheep wondered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, My flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them."

Crowns For the Faithful

I was taken to a particular mansion where I saw many crowns. This mansion was very big and full of crowns. Some crowns were very big, some were small and some of medium sizes. Jesus said,

"These crowns are for the faithful and overcomers who overcome self, the world and the devil. Blessed are the overcomers for they shall sit at My Father's right hand."

Revelation 2:10

"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."

2 Timothy 4:7, 8

7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."

I Saw My Late Friend in Heaven

Jesus again said,

"I will show you that one can serve Me in Righteousness and Holiness all the days of his life amidst this corrupt and perverse generation on earth. I will show you your friend who died in the world."

This friend of mine died in Jalingo, Taraba State, Nigeria, on 7th November, 2001. He was a close friend indeed. We were mates in secondary school. We went to the same Polytechnic, although he was a year ahead of me. There in the Polytechnic we studied together, ate together, sang in the choir together and even slept on the same bed. We did all things in common. Jesus then took me to a mansion, very beautiful. As if my friend had got the knowledge of our coming, he came out of the mansion looking very glorious. He was wearing a big crown on his head and was full of smiles. When he saw me he said in excitement "O Brother Michael, you are welcome!" We shook hands together with him. Jesus pointed at him and said,

"Look at him; you worked in My vineyard together; you did all things in common. If he made it, you too can make it. This is to show you that a young man like you can serve Me acceptably in this corrupt generation, in holiness and righteousness all the days of his life. If he could make it, you too can make it."

Luke 1:73-75

73 "The oath which He swear to our father Abraham,

74 That he would grant unto us, that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life."

I am sure that mansion belongs to my friend. I saw uncountable mansions prepared for the saints, but the saints on earth are not yet prepared. When my friend said "O Brother Michael, you are welcome!" Jesus told him, I was going back to the world. I cried out, "O My Saviour!" I was not willing to return to the world. To know that heaven was mine the joy was beyond comparison. "How sure am I," I said, "that I will be able to make it back again to heaven if I return to the earth?" But Jesus said firmly "You are going back to the world."

Then my friend bid me farewell and said, "Bye, till we meet again." I wept, because I did not want to part with him. Jesus took me away from that place.

John 14:1-3

1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me.

2 In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

Messages to Some Individuals on Earth

My second transit to heaven is more of personal messages to people. I was shown some crowns with some people's names on them. I know some of them personally who are still alive on earth. Jesus asked me,

"Do you know sister …"

He was asking me of a particular sister I know. I answered, "Yes, Lord." He said,

"That sister is My servant."

All at once that sister appeared before us in heaven, dressed in white, looking gloriously beautiful, of no earthly comparison. She was wearing a glorious crown on her head, with a smile on her face.

Again he asked, "Do you know the wife of pastor …?"

He was talking of the wife of one of our pastors. I answered, "Yes, My Lord." He said,

"She is My servant."

All at once this sister appeared in heaven in complete white, shining brightly and gloriously beautiful, with a crown on her head and a joyful smile.

Heaven is a place of perfect beauty. Everything is extremely beautiful. If a heavenly saint appears on earth, his beauty will be beyond the imagination of the minds of men. Cosmetic beauty of the earth in comparison is as clothing someone with rags.

Philippians 3:20, 21

20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whencealso we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself."

Jesus also asked me if I knew some pastors and ministers in our ministry. He mentioned their names and I answered," Yes, My Lord." He said,

"Those are my servants."

He gave me messages to some of my relations, which I delivered.

Jesus said, "I will stand by you"

In my transit to heaven I went to a lot of places. Some of the things I saw I was restricted from speaking about them.

There were some things I asked questions about, but the angel silenced me. I was told not to talk about some of the things I saw, but to testify to men the things that were given to me.

Deuteronomy 29:29

"The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law."

1 Corinthians 2:12, 13

12 "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the wordswhich man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual."

Thanks to God who has been helping me to testify of the things He gave me. Jesus assured me in heaven that He would stand by me.

He said,

"So sent I you to the ends of the earth to tell man My love and warn him of hell fire."

He quoted Hebrews 1:9

"Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."

Jesus said,

"This verse refers to Me, but if any minister submits himself to this Scripture, I will stand by him."

He said,

"As I love righteousness and hate iniquity, so send I you. Hate iniquity till your last blood drops. Never encourage iniquity. Make this your personal commitment and I will be with you."

Psalm 97:10, 11

10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart."

Hebrews 12:4

"Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striven againstsin."

2 Chronicles 16:9

"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him."

The Second Visit to Hell

Again Jesus said,

"I am taking you back to hell to see the agony of hell."

We arrived at the gate and I saw people walking on the broad way to hell. Multitudes were trooping to hell. In hell I heard the groaning of the damned. This was the second time I went to hell. I heard people crying and confessing the sins they refused to confess on earth. Many pastors are in hell. Many ministers of the gospel are in hell. Atheists and various categories of people are in hell. No tongue can tell the horror and sufferings of hell.

Psalm 9:17

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."

Isaiah 5:14-16

14 "Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:

16 But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness."

Jesus said,

"I created them and loved them with everlasting love. but they hated Me; that is why I am destroying them with My everlasting destruction. Go and tell man, if any desires to come to heaven, I Jesus, will give him every grace he needs to come to heaven. But if any desires to go to hell, Satan will immediately give him all the support he needs to be there."

Deuteronomy 30:15-20

15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes, and His judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to posses it.

17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to posses it.

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live:

20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."

I saw a Member of Our Local Church in Hell

I saw a brother in hell. He was a member of our church. This brother was very committed and zealous, but alas, he died with hidden and unconfessed sin and found himself in hell. When I saw him I did not believe he was the one. I tapped Jesus and asked, "My Lord, is this the brother from so and so church?" He answered,

"Yes."

The brother began to speak, "I committed fornication and covered it and death came and carried me away." If a brother of such zeal and commitment could still go to hell, we must fear God and walk with care everyday."

Proverbs 28:13

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy."

James 5:16

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Suffering Assured Me For Preaching Holiness

Jesus, the two angels and I stood together. He pointed his hand to hell and said,

"Man cannot understand the nature of the torments of hell, however, go and tell him. Tell him if all the sufferings of the earth were gathered together to be borne by one man, it would still not compare to what that man will suffer for 24 hours in hell. Yet man may not understand; go and still tell him."

Jesus continued,

"You will pass through a lot of suffering because of this message of Holiness and Righteousness. Because of the pollution that is in the world, many will deny the power of godliness and righteous living. Yet, go. I have sent you. I will stand by you."

John 15:18-21

18 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not Him that sent Me."

Careless Lives of Believers

After this Jesus lamentably said,

"Believers are living in this life as if they are of the world. But they are not of the world. They are supposed to live separate from the world.

He continued,

"I bless My people, but they abuse My blessings."

Jesus quoted Jeremiah 22:21

"I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou sayest, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice."

Jesus said,

"The people have no concern for the poor and needy. Very unfortunately the pilgrim has forgotten that he is a stranger in this world. The church is doing nothing about the never dying souls of men in the world. The church must awake from sleep and slumber and save dying men from going to hell."

He quoted 2 Peter 3:8-14:

8 "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent

that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless."

Jesus emphatically said,

"Without holiness Hebrews 12:14

"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord."

He said,

"Go and tell man, My standard has not changed. The standard of the word of God has not changed. I have not changed My standard for any generation, for any age, for any people."

Psalm 119:89

"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven."

Jesus said,

"You are going back to the world."

He brought me to the gate and said,

"I will see you again."

Then the two angels brought me on the way. As we were going I saw a place like a globe afar off. It was looking darkly, but I could see lights here and there: some shining brightly, some dimly and some almost quenching. I asked the angel, "What place am I seeing afar off?" He answered, "That is the dirty world people are crazy for and wasting their lives about. The lights you see here and there in it is the light of Christ upon the believers that are in it." I saw the vanity of the world and its deception on man.

Ecclesiastes 12:8

"Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity."

Matthew 16:26

"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his own soul?"

This is the account of my second visit to heaven and to hell. I cannot say all the things I saw and heard. We went to many places in heaven. This second transit lasted for about 9 hours. At this time my body was lying lifeless in the Retreat camp. This happened in the youth camp of the Deeper Life Easter Retreat, 2003. When I revived on Sunday morning I saw myself surrounded by church leaders and pastors. They had removed me from the youth camp to an isolated place in the adult camp.
